The heat is on in Brazil

A scorching summer in Brazil. The hottest January on record has left reservoirs dry. Authorities say it's not a crisis yet. But the drought is raising fears of crop damage and water shortages. It's a problem for this car wash owner. (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) ANTONIO CARLOS MOREIRA, CAR WASH OWNER, SAYING: "I depend on the water to work, to wash the car, but it is more important to drink and eat. Everything depends on water. Everything depends on water. We are kind of worried with the situation." Adding to the problems -- a high pressure system has blocked normal afternoon rains during what is usually the year's wettest month.
